Course overview:

  • Avoid common drysuit diving problems
  • Choose a drysuit and undergarments
  • Care for your drysuit

The course is divided into 4 segments:

1. Read and complete E-Learning Manuel
2. Instructor will go over your answers and talk more about your drysuit and what you will require before the water sessions
3. 1x Confined Water Pool session to work on skills and get comfortable before heading to do the open water sections.
4. 2x Open Water dives going over skills and techniques you learned in the pool and working on buoyancy and safety skills in the ocean

What do I need?

Personal dive gear (Full Kit) plus 3x tanks for the one confined and two open water dives. Don't worry if you don't have this yet as you can hire it for $100, but for comfort, we recommend you have your own. Speak to us first before purchasing to be sure the equipment is appropriate. A drysuit would recommend being your own as this is fitted for your body shape. You can hire but this must be organised before the day of the course.
